Freedom Fighter: Kurtis Sprayberry

The events of nine-eleven inspired eighteen year old Kurtis Sprayberry and his cousin to join the Marine Corps. When his cousin was killed in a car wreck, Sprayberry went ahead with the plans and soon found himself in the middle of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Sprayberry has served two tours of duty in the Middle East. His job as a Motor Transportation Driver put him in constant danger from roadside bombs. In spite of this, Kurtis Sprayberry says the U.S. is doing "a good deed over there" and he would do it again if he had the choice.
